Lord & Lady Shaftesbury attended an intimate charity dinner here at Victoria last week in aid of our ’Canopy Appeal’.
Guests were invited to a delicious 3 course meal, supplied for free by catering company ‘Alice Bee at Home’, owned by Alice Ogeleye.
“Our son Toby who had cerebral palsy, passed away last year and we wanted to thank the school for the wonderful work and the incredible support they offered Toby and our family. Having recently set up a catering company, I wanted to offer a special evening of champagne & fine dining and in return guests were asked to donate towards their dining experience. Everyone was incredibly generous and the evening raised £2,500, which will go towards the school’s ‘Canopy Appeal’.”
The ‘Canopy Appeal’ has been set up to raise funds for an 80 meter walkway between the main school and Carmel House, which desperately requires a covering, as our students are open to the elements as they cross between them for lessons. Thanks to the support of the guests at the charity dinner and Alice’s generosity, we are one step closer to fulfilling this much needed facility.
If you would like to get involved in fundraising or make a donation to our canopy appeal, please contact Sue Stratis on 01202 763697 or email for further information.
